Greetings folks :arrow: (for lack of a :wave: :D ) Let's get this party started right and help PA pass their MMJ initiative(s).

Links are live...except for the "Please contact your state representatives now..." link. It says it's unavailable linking from the original message :( I'll fix that if and when it comes up again.

Dear omitted:

Can you believe that Pennsylvania treats patients with cancer and other serious illnesses as criminals if they relieve their suffering with the medical use of marijuana?

This year we could finally change that. Rep. Mark Cohen (D-Philadelphia) has introduced HB 1393, which will protect seriously ill Pennsylvania residents from arrest and prosecution for using medical marijuana with their doctors' recommendations.

Please contact your state representatives now and urge them to co-sponsor and support HB 1393.

Media organizations across the state have covered the introduction. You can help keep the bill in the news by sending a letter to the editor of your local paper now.

If you are a medical professional or a patient who might benefit from medical marijuana, or if you know somebody who might benefit from medical marijuana, we would like to hear from you. Additionally, if you are a law enforcement official or a clergy member, please e-mail to learn how you can be of special help.

Please forward this message to your friends, relatives, and e-mail lists so they can take action to support medical marijuana patients in Pennsylvania.
